Lake Hartwell – Anderson County, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Anderson County Photos | Lake Hartwell
Lake Hartwell in Anderson County is a man-made lake created by the Hartwell Dam on the Savannah River. The lake is a popular recreation spot for fishermen due to the many varieties of fish that swim in its smooth waters.
Many thanks to photographer David Martin of Laurens for submitting this picture he took while visiting Singing Pines Park. David says that he was on the South Carolina side of Hartwell Dam, and that this is one of his “favorite spots for sunsets. Evenings with a few clouds is all anyone needs at this location. This place is the best I have found for viewing awesome sunsets.”
SCIWAY visitor Perry Fields of Clemson wrote us to say that “when the heat finally subsides on Lake Hartwell, the mornings are cool and the lake usually has ‘magical’ fog on it. The contrast of the trees, and the softness of the light from the fog is particularly nice.”
